Executive Council and Planning Minutes 5-13-16.pdf

I am honored to be able to represent the WVPHA as President Elect this year and as Acting President since Karen resigned.

I am pleased to work with a great Executive Council and Planning Committee as we plan for conference in September at Canaan. Many members devote a lot of time and resources to assure WVPHA is a successful organization and that we have a great conference. All ideas and suggestions for improvement of the organization or for subjects or speakers for conference are welcomed.   

 A big Thank You to every public health worker who participates in activities each day in support of improving West Virginia‚Äôs health.
